Premi Posted August 30, 2022 Report Share Posted August 30, 2022 California man charged with hate crime after rant at Taco Bell against Indian man Singh Tejinder, 37, was filmed repeatedly saying "dirty Hindu" and other derogatory comments about the Indian ethnicity and Hindu faith to Krishnan Jayaraman on Aug. 21.https://www.nbcnews.com/news/us-news/california-man-charged-hate-crime-rant-taco-bell-indian-man-rcna45463 Jayaraman recorded the tirade that lasted over eight minutes on his phone, capturing the moment Tejinder told him: “You’re disgusting, dog. You look nasty. Don’t come out in public like this again.” In the foul-mouthed rant, Tejinder called him a "dirty Hindu," repeatedly used the N-word, and insinuated Jayaraman didn’t eat meat and yelled “Beef!” in his face. He appeared to spit at Jayaraman twice in the footage. At one point Tejinder was seen saying, "B----, this ain’t India! You f---ed India up, and now you’re f---ing America up.” The Fremont Police Department confirmed the footage to NBC News. Jayaraman said he was frightened by the incident, and was even more upset to later learn the perpetrator was also Indian. “I was scared, to be honest with you. I was infuriated on the one hand, but I was scared that, ‘What if this guy becomes too belligerent and then comes after me?’” he said to NBC Bay Area. 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
